7 Fun Hawaiian Wedding Ideas for Tying the Knot in Paradise ...


Getting married in Hawaii is a dream come true for many couples, especially with so many amazing Hawaiian wedding ideas to help make the day all the more fun and memorable.

Ready to start planning the celebration of a lifetime?

Check out a few of my all-time favorite Hawaiian wedding ideas, and let the tropical spirit carry you away.

1. Sunset Ceremony on the Sand

Sunset Ceremony on the Sand

In such a gorgeous setting with warm weather all throughout the year, thereโ€™s nothing more fitting and beautiful than tying the knot on a Hawaiian beach as the sun sinks low into the sea behind you.

By timing things just right, you may even be able to conclude the ceremony in time to capture a few more couple or wedding party photos afterward before the final glimmers fade away.2

Of course, sunset ceremonies can often work just as well in locations other than the beach, such as in a botanical garden or out at sea on a boat.

Incorporating other fun Hawaiian wedding ideas, like ukulele music or a lei exchange, can also add some extra tropical flair.

2. Lei Exchange

Lei Exchange

As previously mentioned, a lei exchange is always a great addition to any Hawaiian ceremony.

At my sister-in-lawโ€™s recent Big Island wedding, she and her fiancรฉ took part in this tradition by giving each other freshly made leis โ€“ white orchid for her and ti leaf for him โ€“ in addition to rings, making for both a memorable moment and wonderful photos.

3. Signature Hawaiian Cocktails

Signature Hawaiian Cocktails

What Hawaiian wedding would be complete without classic island-style drinks like the Mai Tai or Blue Hawaii?

Serving a couple signature cocktails along with wine and beer in lieu of offering a full open bar is also a smart way to reduce costs while still staying true to your theme.
